DEFENSE INNOVATION CHALLENGE

TechConnect is proud to host the 2021 Defense Innovation Challenges, delivering transformational technologies to our National Defense.This Innovation Prospecting program is designed specifically to deliver private-sector early-stage technologies to the DoD in support of the warfighter.

Our Challenge is specifically intended for universities and startups who developed a novel technology or service, who are in the pre-revenue, seed/angel funding or bootstrapped stage (i.e. have not raised a Series A round of investment), and not a subsidiary of a corporation.
